Car problems

So...
My 2000 Ram 1/2 ton had an oil leak...took it to the stealership what an expensive mistake.

$$$

Not an actual picture but a fair resemblance...
2005 Dodge Ram 3500 Dually Laramie package with the Cummins Turbo Diesel...

It's not housebroke yet!


Thanks...

I always wanted a Dually and have spent the last month weighing all the ins and outs...and driving everything and when it all came together...it was between this and and H2(while not a dually...a serious contender all the same)...needless to say I went the "practical" route. (sorry Pete)

Re: Car problems

You got a much better choice if you ask me That's a sweet ride. You'll be able to pull a double wide if you have to

Re: Car problems

I saw an episode of trucks where they put a selectable chip, exhaust, and cold air on a F250 and got I think close to 700 hp and 700 #ft of torque.... That was on the power setting, there were 2 below that.
